I have application user density data that I've collected. Each gps point has a user density associated with it (for example: 150 users within a 1 km radius, which calculates to users/[pi*R-sq] OR 47.746 users per square km).
I have taken these points and turned them into an interpolated raster surface with a cell size of 50mx50m. Now I can see the whole user density across the map. I accounted for the cell size by dividing the km-sq density by 400 (there are 400 50m by 50m cells in 1 square km). So now each cell reports the number of users (like .25 users per sq 50m).
- Now what I want to do is tell ArcMap to create circles that maximize coverage of the map and have within them a total of 150 users. So I want ArcMap to sum up the cell values to equal 150 but within a circular area.
- I also want to minimize the number of circles that are needed to cover the whole map.
I'm stuck. I've tried block statistics, but I can't designate that I want users to be added together, only the size of the areas. At then end of this I want a map with circles of 150 users each.
